Fall Library Events—Register Now

We’re turning the page to fall here at the library. Our Events calendar is now open with programming through November. Most events require registration. Exceptions are noted, such as for a few drop-in storytime sessions.

Our monthly Sunday Music Matinees are back for all ages. American folk music, guitarists and an award-winning pianist are on the calendar in the coming months.

Marlee Matlin is the fall headliner for virtual author events sponsored by Illinois Libraries Present, a collaborative effort among over 150 public libraries. Attend an in-person gathering with a virtual presenter at the library or join via Zoom. Same goes for other featured authors and thought leaders on the schedule.

See the latest edition of Reading Matters for all the inspiring, educational and entertaining events we have planned. We also have several activities surrounding Hispanic Heritage Month and Day of the Dead displays.

If you have little ones, you won't want to miss a special concert with popular children’s musician, Jim Gill, to kickoff our exciting new program: 1,000 Books and More Before Kindergarten.

 

Looking for a book club to join? Check out page 3 of Reading Matters with options starting at age 6. Know someone who needs an ESL course? We’ve got that, too, thanks to People’s Resource Center.

Discovery Packs for Kids


It's a new school year for many children in Warrenville and what better way to prepare your child for a new experience than with one of our Discovery Packs? Located near the picture book collection in the Youth Services Department, the Discovery Packs are thematic kits in convenient backpacks that can be checked out to WPLD members for two weeks. In preparation for the upcoming school year, there are themes of starting day care, preschool and kindergarten. For other new experiences, we have topics ranging from going to the dentist to yoga and even long-term Illnesses. Each pack comes with several books, an activity or a DVD.

If you are looking for topic-specific materials curated for children up to age eight, the Discovery Packs are the tools for you. Stop by the Youth Services Desk for more information or place a hold on one in the catalog.
